Bill was born May 21, 1947 in Columbia, South Carolina, son of John William Phillipps and Valerie Hall Phillipps. He grew up in Walterboro, spending most of his time playing sports, hunting, fishing, and working at his father’s stockyard. After graduating from The Citadel in 1969, Bill served in the US Army in Viet Nam, where he was awarded a Purple Heart and a Bronze Star. He came home and worked in banking at SCN then felt pulled to go to dental school at MUSC and began his career as a dentist in 1979. He retired from dentistry in 2019 after 40 years in private practice where his patients inevitably became more like family. Bill will be remembered for his quick wit, endless supply of jokes and stories, love of golf and shrimping, and incredible wood working skills, honed over the last few decades in his backyard workshop, lovingly dubbed The Cave. In addition to the many pieces of fine furniture he made, his incredible cutting boards are cherished by the people who are lucky enough to have one. He was a member of many clubs and organizations. Throughout his career, he volunteered his time as a dentist at two local outreach clinics, Our Lady of Mercy on Johns Island and the free dental clinic established by the Charleston Baptist Association in North Charleston. He also took part in several medical mission trips to Honduras with St Philip’s Church. Along with his wife, Bill is survived by his three daughters; Katharine (Bryant) Bair, Morgan (Casey) Bearsch, Laura (Todd) Helmey; sister, Susan P. Humphreys and six grandchildren; Reeves Bair, Bennett Bair, Julia Bair, Lee Bearsch, William Bearsch, and Jack Bearsch.
